Modern-day heroes, the invincible Jewish Maccabees of our time, continue to be raised up by the Almighty. Time does not allow me to tell of all the brave pioneers who re-conquered the Holy Land and gained what was promised; they became mighty in battle, and put foreign armies to flight. There is no coincidence in the extraordinary events of the 20th century that led to the re-birth of Israel. God orchestrated history to bring us to this moment. Jesus prophesied the generation that witnesses the blossoming of the fig tree, the nation of Israel, will also see His return!

Following is a word that I recently received from the Lord, that summarizes this great prophecy coming to pass . . . .

“In the beginning of the end, the Lord God remembered his words through the prophet Hosea, “ I will go away and return to My place on high until they acknowledge their offense and seek my face. After two days I will revive them and on the third day I will raise them up, that they may live in My sight. For truly as one day is as a thousand years with the Lord so Israel was scattered for two days, yet I hid my face for only two days because they are the apple of My eye, they are graven upon the palms of my hands. As surely as the sun rises, I will appear, says the Lord. I will come to you like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth. It is not only for your sakes, O Israel, that I am restoring you, says the Lord, but it is for the sake of My holy name as a testimony before a profane and rebellious world. For I am a covenant keeping God. I made an everlasting covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to give this land to their descendants. I do not break covenants as do human traitors and truce breakers —but I the LORD made an everlasting covenant with the house of Israel, and at this time, the world will see that I have kept faith with my Heritage. Although I scattered them to all nations, yet I have never forgotten them, and I will restore them with all my heart and with all my soul. O My people, did I not promise through My prophet Ezekiel that I would open your graves and resurrect you out of the horrors of the Holocaust and the perils of the pogroms? Have I not done miracles of resurrection on your behalf in the face of an unbelieving world? As in the days of the Bible I put my hand upon individuals—men whom the world would not have chosen, yet I chose Theodor Herzl and gave him vision for the Third Commonwealth of Israel, and although many places and names were put forward such as Zion or Judah, My sovereign will prevailed and the resurrected nation in My Land was given its biblical name Eretz Israel, the land of Israel, the modern state of Israel, in its own Land with My menorah as its national emblem. Declares the Lord, When I look down from heaven upon My Land, I do not see a nation called Palestine, for the Romans in mockery re-named the province of Judea and the Land of Israel after the Philistines. They did this resentfully, to obliterate the link between My people and their homeland, to keep the world from recognising and remembering the Land of Israel. But behold, when I look upon the region, what do I, the LORD, see? I see Egypt my People, Assyria, the ongoing work of my hands, and Israel, My inheritance, to become a blessing in the midst of the earth. I see a highway of holiness, for My house shall be called a House of Prayer for all nations when My Son Yeshua soon returns to reign upon the throne of his ancestral father David in Jerusalem, and thus the law shall go forth from Zion and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem when I restore the kingdom to Israel at this time. I the LORD have been active in recent history sending out the fishers and the hunters to bring home My people in preparation for the thousand year rule of King Messiah from Jerusalem. I sent Ze’ev Jabotinsky and Joseph Trumpeldor and many activists to warn My people to come home, and many returned, wave upon wave, and by the sweat of their brows they drained swamps and redeemed the land that had lay fallow for centuries and was denuded. I raised up Eliezer Ben Yehuda who heard my trumpet call to restore the Hebrew tongue of the prophets. From my evangelical lions in Britain, I put my hand upon men who fulfilled the words of My prophets. My evangelicals passed the vision of restoration to Jewish circles, even My heroic champion, William Hechler, was My strong shadow figure behind Jewish aspirations in the Holy Land. Indeed Hechler was co-founder of the state of Israel as he held up the arms of Herzl. Says the Lord, I put within the hearts of my evangelical pioneers the duty of every believer to love my ancient people the Jews to whom every Bible believer is indebted, for they preserved the Scriptures and the lineage of the Saviour. Without prejudice, My servant Hechler rightly observed from the Scriptures that the Jewish people would first return to the Land of Promise in unbelief, and only after they are settled in their own land will I pour out of my Holy Spirit upon them once again. I also brought My people to Switzerland and there they remembered Zion and laid the foundation for the new old land. By faith Herzl was commissioned by Messiah as were Balfour, Palmerston, Shaftebury, Allenby, and My faithful warriors Wingate and Patterson, who all by faith helped to prepare the modern state. It was their allegiance to the risen Lord that gave them the courage and vision to call for the re-establishment of a Jewish state. Says the LORD— My hand was upon my lion Ben Gurion and my handmaiden Golda who was gifted to raise funds for the beleaguered state . . . and the miracle of Independence was written on a scroll, with only one name of the Almighty acknowledged— the Rock of Israel. Yea, it was the Rock who followed My people in the wilderness, the Rock that poured forth living water– and that Rock was Messiah. Even now I have raised up many bridge builders among the peoples of the Book who are repairing the breach and returning the baton of salvation to Israel. The world will see My unwavering faithfulness, for there is still a place for Israel in My plan in these last days, says the LORD, and My plan is unfolding before your eyes when the kingdom will be restored to Israel. Then shall My people know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the nations: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and neither will I hide my face from them any more: for I will pour out my spirit upon the house of Israel, says the LORD. Yes, in those days and at that time, after many Jubilees in which the land lay fallow, know that when I restore Judah and Jerusalem from captivity, then I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning My people, My inheritance, Israel, whom they scattered among the nations and they divided up My land. Therefore know the times, know the season, says the LORD, and to my Israel I warn you all—do not be deceived by the false Messiah who is to be revealed, the man of sin, the pretender, the imposter, the anti-Messiah; I forbid you to take his mark, says the LORD. But wait for the times of restoration of all things, which I have spoken by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began. After 6,000 years of human rebellion, My Son will rule from Jerusalem for 1,000 years during the Sabbath Millennium.”

Amen and amen!
